A.
It is recommended to tie elastic cord using a square or surgeon's knot. Provided below is a how-to video and illustrated instructions on both of these type of knots.

Once knotted, you'll want to apply an adhesive to the knot. Choose an instant adhesive such as PascoFix┬« instant adhesive or a flexible adhesive like E6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive. Both of these adhesives will work to help secure your knot and your finished design.
